I'm a big proponent of Solar Energy. If I could get solar panels on my roof that would be cost effective, I would do it.
From CNN, comes the story of designer Ross Lovegrove's street lamps (Solar Trees) that not only use solar energy, but are beautiful pieces of sculpture. They seem to be sprouting in Europe...why not here in the US? Apparently, even after 4 days without sun, the lamps still work.
Why is the US so behind the times with energy-efficient innovations?
